Absorption – Evolution / Faturenet Recordings

by on March 26, 2012 in Netaudio

Hailing from the market town of Pershore in Worcestershire come Absorption; the work of David Pugh, Paul Groom and Georgina Groom.

Working in the realm of ambient sound, they produce soundscape electronics aiming to bridge dark ambient drones, acoustic elements, and spoken word. And with Evolution they pretty much cover that successfully.

Absorption create, experimental, ambient, chillout, soundscapes and electronic music. Using such instruments as, synths, guitars, e-bow, bazouki, violin and of course the human voice.

Released back in February on netlabel Faturenet Recordings, Evolution is an 8 track collection of work recorded by the trio between 2008 and 2011. It consists of shimmering ambient sound and drifts between darker and lighter tones over the course of the album. This isn’t dark ambient along the lines of the seminal Lull project of Mick Harris or the actual at times terrifying work of Brian Williams’s Lustmord instead it’s more melancholic, calming but not uplifting, in fact parts of Evolution feel remorseful, funereal and for some a place to find solace.
